Skeleton gloves, face masks, etc.

Fatwaa ID: 388

Question:
Someone asked: is it permissible to wear anything that represents a skeleton? Like gloves that show the bones of a human hand, a face mask that shows the bones of your jaw etc…

Answer:
In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

There is no religious prohibition in wearing the above. However, if it has a negative connotation or it is generally perceived as bad and would affect one’s reputation, then it should be avoided. We are advised to dress respectfully and maintain our dignity. Such may be contrary to that.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
